Something else to think about would be the wood swelling you’re going to get in using a PVA vs. CA glue. It might not swell the ebony very much at all, but it’ll swell the hickory a little bit, locking everything in place that way, vs. the CA glue that will just fill the gap.

I just used TBIII on an ebony pull on a bandsaw box to connect it to some beetle kill pine. We will see how it holds up, since it will be pulled on, vs. your application where there won’t be any further stress on the joint once the inlay is in place.
